Five Reasons Ed Lee Will Probably Run for Mayor

Posted By on Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 8:35 AM

By now, we can all assume that Mayor Ed Lee is going to jump into the mayor's race -- and smoke everyone. In fact, City Hall insiders are already saying he's hired a campaign consultant and that Lee will announce his candidacy when he returns from his family trip on the East Coast.

People trusted him when he said he would only be a caretaker mayor, so why is Lee going back on his word? Here are some possible reasons.

1. His potential bosses scare him: Sure, his old job as City Administrator pays a hell of a lot more, but it also probably sucks way more -- for many reasons. When looking at his options, it became clear why Lee changed his mind: He doesn't want to work for any of those guys running for mayor.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
